The monument consists of the remains of a deserted rural settlement, probably dating to the medieval or post-medieval period. This settlement comprised at least three rectangular buildings set on artificial platforms dug into the slope and a large enclosure defined by an earth bank.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval or post-medieval settlement organisation. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. A deserted rural settlement may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
